Foot orthotics

Custom support to help reduce pain and increase mobility

Insoles or custom orthotics for shoes can support your feet and take the strain off joints affected by poor foot posture

What are orthotics and how can they help?

Orthotics or foot orthoses are one non-surgical option to correct foot posture or lower limb deformities and relieve the associated symptoms. Your consultant may suggest standard insoles to support the arch of your foot or custom orthotics tailored to correct your specific foot condition.

Foot posture refers to the the arch of your feet and how weight is distributed across your heel, toes and the ball of your foot. Flat feet (overpronation) or high arches (supination) are two extremes of foot posture. Both can be an underlying cause of chronic pain, potentially affecting your legs, hips and lower back.

Your consultant may recommend a biomechanical assessment and gait analysis to determine how your foot posture may be affecting the way you stand, walk or run. Digital foot scanning technology can also identify pressure points caused by poor foot posture. Orthotic shoes may also be an option.
